This video poem presents a nightmarish image of a body that seems to be inspired by Hellraiser and The Matrix. A sitting skeletal naked body with an umbilical-like cord connected to his heart and a screen for a face, inside of which a face grotesquely screams, apparently in pain or a trance (or both) seems to be the speaker for the poem. The verbal part of the poem is delivered entirely by audio, and through electronically distorted voices.
